Cardinals deciding next step for Michael Wacha
by R.J. White |

The Cardinals remain undecided on whether to have pitcher Michael Wacha make another rehab appearance during the Triple-A playoffs or rejoin the Cardinals, reports.

Wacha threw 34 pitches in his rehab start with Double-A Springfield Monday, giving up one hit and one walk during two scoreless innings. "Very good," manager Mike Matheny said of Wacha. "He had good velocity, was efficient, got quick outs and located everything well."

If Wacha were to pitch with the Cardinals later in the week, he would be on a limited pitch count as he continues to rebuild arm strength. The pitcher has been sidelined since June 17 with a shoulder issue.

by Igor Mello |

Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and three relievers tossed a combined no-hitter Monday afternoon against the Braves in Atlanta. It's the first combined no-hitter in franchise history.

Hamels was denied a no-hitter due to a high pitch count. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning with a no-hitter intact. He issued five walks and ran his pitch count to 108 before his day was over. He struck out seven over six hitless innings and picked up the win.

Jake Diekman struck out two in a perfect seventh inning and Ken Giles struck out the side in the eighth. Jonathan Papelbon needed nine pitches to retire Jose Constanza, Chris Johnson and Phil Gosselin to secure a 7-0 no-hit victory and the save.
